Took the family here for a roast dinner this Sunday and I couldn't praise them enough. Great food and a great atmosphere. The service provided by Laura white was second to none. Definitely coming back when visiting the fàmily. Well done Jolly Denman.

This pub has just been taken over by a new manager and will be fully refurbished next month. In the meantime, Tara (the new manager) is working miracles in a busy pub with minimal staffing. The bar and dining room are clean, but do look...More
